Vote for Australia’s best tackle store

THE Australian Fishing Trade Association (AFTA), the peak body representing Australia’s fishing trade wholesalers and retailers is on the search for Australia’s best bait and tackle store.

With over 5 million Australians going fishing every year and spending around $10 billion to do so, Australia’s fishing stores are an important part of the fabric in Australia’s recreational fishing community.

AFTA’s Chief Executive said “Australia’s fishing stores are legendary. All of us have a story about our favourite bait and tackle store and the characters that run them. These stores do more than just sell fishing tackle they are repositories for information on where the fish are biting, what they are biting on, the story about the one that got away and the one that didn’t.

“Many of these stores also provide a vital community service as a focal point for a range of activities, including teaching kids to fish and conducting on-ground works to improve the riverine and marine habitat. It’s no wonder many of us spend so much time in these stores.”

“With over two thousand stores selling bait and tackle we need the help of the general public to find Australia’s Best stores.”

“We are asking everyone to nominate their favourite store at and tell us why their nominated store should be the Best Bait and Tackle Store in Australia.”

The winners of Australia’s Best Bait and Tackle Store will be announced at the AFTA Gala Dinner at the AFTA Trade Show on Tuesday 27 August 2013.
